Houghton, aged 27, is ranked as the world’s number three contender and the British champion in the Super Lightweight division. She suffered defeat in a world championship match against Monteil, and her record stands at 13 wins, 7 knockouts and 3 losses. She wants to earn her way back to a title shot.

“This match is a huge one for me, says the Englishwoman. I’ve had back-to-back wins in the second half of 2020 and I have every intention of mounting a challenge to reigning champion Alesia Schumann. A convincing win against Nadia is the best way to climb the ladder, and I will get it. I’m ready for war.”

Ranked as number five, Monteil is aged 33 and has a record made of 34 wins (28 KO), three losses and one draw. She had a long reign as Super Lightweight world champion prior to Anastasia Orlova taking the belt away in 2019.

“It’s no secret that this match is critical for a return to form after two losses and nearly two years of inactivity, says the French veteran. However, I’m ready. I sparred with men and women who have more experience than Sky will ever have, and I will knock her out for a second time.”

Two giants. One from England, one from France. Who will triumph?
